The Spring 2019 – A Story of Vulnerability
A vulnerable, naked self, unfurling gently into life.
It is the new leaf, the closed bud, where the potential for new growth and development lies, treasuring inside the baby leaves, stems and flowers, closely folded in its own fragility ready to become.
Soft bodies conceived into the nurturing, protective, cherishing embrace of the cocooning winter, feeling the threshold of the spring, gaining courage to unfold from the dark into the light, gaining courage to be seen as our vulnerable inner feminine realm is, drop by drop, slowly, prudently, pouring herself into the outer masculine world around us.
Sensing the touch of the light……..are we ready to be seen?
Are we ready to be touched?
Everything could be so soft and fluid, if we could dare to be the vulnerability of a new birth.
Moving towards the light is an act of courage, it is to let go of who we think we should be, in order to be who we are, loosening our history into a process of being.
Am I beautiful enough? Intelligent enough? Creative enough? Funny, attractive, brilliant enough?
In a world that is asking us to be special, are we special enough?
And when we think “enough” is not what we are, shame comes, carrying with it, fears, old-patterns, believes, self-limiting behaviors, and we hide our vulnerability behind disconnection and numbness.
But the juice of life is our ability to connect, to bond, to touch the world with our presence as we allow the world to touch us back with the liveness of life.
In order to connect and find belonging, we need to embrace our vulnerability, it means we need to be seen, and in order to dare to be seen, we need to dare to see ourselves, and in order to see ourselves, we need to leave the familiar shore and adventure into the unknown.
Are we ready to take the new opportunity to explore the potentials within life?
To explore our individuality within the interconnectedness of the whole?
Are we ready to be this new life, vulnerable and naked?
We need gentleness, we need to allow ourselves to fall again and again, as we learn how to walk into connection, fragility, love and belonging.
In the beginning it is a hesitant journey, now uncurling to curl back in again, now opening and unfolding to enfold and close again, as we become aware of ourselves and of the movement of our thoughts, our feelings and emotions, finding trust into our new self.
Vulnerability is the ability to accept ourselves fully as we believe we are worthy to receive love and belong. Surrendering to our vulnerability is to reconnect to the love we felt as a child and invite our mothers and fathers into our life, and be born again into life.
We come here through our parents and as their children we are connected to them and through them, generation after generation, to the source of life.
When our bonding with our parents is flowing freely, we are open to life and life can stream through us.
When we are denying our connection to them, we cut ourselves off from the life force available in us.
Rejecting our parents is rejecting ourselves, it is rejecting the gift of life. Rejecting our vulnerability, by numbing ourselves away from what we judge as not good, it is numbing ourselves away from our beauty and the joy of being alive.
The emotions, traits and behaviors we neglect in our fathers and mothers might live on in us, unconsciously carrying our love for them, unconsciously carrying our love for ourselves.
By inviting them into our lives, we embrace our vulnerability, consenting to ourselves to belong, to be who we are with a full heart and fall in love with this fragility, this imperfection we are. Today I surrender into my vulnerability, listening to it at each step as I walk towards you dear mother, listening to it at each step as I walk towards you dear father. Today I surrender into my vulnerability, listening to it at each step as I walk towards myself.
Welcome Spring……welcome Life.
